New Video Shows Harvey Weinstein Inappropriately Touching Rape Accuser

New footage has emerged of Harvey Weinstein behaving inappropriately with a woman during a business meeting before it is alleged he went on to rape her.

Harvey Weinstein is escorted in handcuffs into the State Supreme Court after on Monday for arraignment on charges alleging he committed a sex crime against a third woman on 9 July 2018 in New York City. If he made a comment, I would try to catch it and return it in a way that felt a little safer than the way he threw it at me.

Thompson told Sky News Weinstein was "playing a cat-and-mouse game from the very beginning to see how far he could push me, and what my reactions might be so that he could gauge how he would play with (me), where my levers were, what were my vulnerabilities". Melissa Thompson, then 28, says that the meeting had been arranged to demo a video and analytics service that her tech start-up had developed with the company's marketing team.

"Now I see he's trying, in any way he can, to move me into that zone of comfortable then uncomfortable and confused, and vulnerable, and recognising that he's powerful and I'm not, and that I need this deal from him, and he has the power to give it to me".

The 28-year-old was on Monday night confirmed as America's final wildcard for this month's Ryder Cup . According to the Billy Horschel rule, however, Furyk still has one more pick to make this week.

When Ms Thompson offered the movie mogul a handshake, he pushed her hand away hugging her instead and running his hand up and down her back saying "that's nice, let's keep it up". Weinsten then asks Thompson if he is "allowed to flirt" with her, to which she responds, "Um, we'll see". "We don't have to live with things that are illegal and abusive".

In the video, Thompson is polite and friendly with Weinstein, but at one point he reportedly touched her leg off-camera.

In the video, she can be heard telling Weinstein: "Data's so hot, right?" She told Sky News she was expecting that this would be a follow-up meeting to close the deal. Instead, she says she was asked to follow Weinstein upon arriving at the hotel to what she thought would be a conference room, but was actually his private hotel room.

In an interview with Sky News, Thompson said Weinstein's behavior was distracting and she struggled to stay "on script" with the product pitch.

Weinstein's lawyer says the full video "demonstrates that there is nothing forceful" and shows "casual, if not awkward, flirting from both parties". Anything short of that is meant to make Mr. Weinstein appear inappropriate, and even exploitative. I constantly felt trapped, no matter where I turned. She tried to fight him and get away from him along the way but he kept blocking her way. Thompson is a major player in the class action lawsuit against the fallen producer.

"This is a further attempt to publicly disgrace Mr Weinstein for financial gain, and we will not stand for it". "I thought I could handle it".

Meantime, prosecutors in the criminal case filed papers Wednesday challenging defense claims that they withheld evidence from a grand jury that could have helped Weinstein deny the allegations, including emails proving he had a consensual relationship with one of the alleged victims.
